Each week, Wyandotte Patch features adoptable pets from Wyandotte.
Cathy McCormick, a volunteer with Shelter to Home, introduces us to Dottie the dog and Tori the cat:
Dottie is a young, adult mixed breed dog who is quite the character. She is loving, very animated and energetic and leaves an impression on all. Dottie is good with other dogs, loves people and would be good with children. Because she has an almost relentless need to play with cats, it would be best if her future home did not have cats. She is being crate-trained during the day as she is not fully housebroken; her future home must understand this and be willing to continue to work with her. Because of her Jack Russell breed, she does have a good amount of energy. A fenced-in yard also would be a benefit as she loves to run around. Dottie has been spayed and is current on all vaccines.
Tori is a beautiful cat with a great personality. She gets along well with other cats, but has not been tested with a dog. Tori has tested negative for feline AIDS and feline leukemia, is current on all vaccines and is spayed.
The Shelter to Home Pet Adoption Center is located at 266 Oak St. Adoptions are done by appointment only. The Pet Adoption Center is open from noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays for tours and visiting with some of our adoptable cats in a home-like setting. Cats also are on display in the Luv-A-Pet Center at the Canton PetSmart, 41856 Ford Road. An entire list, including photographs and descriptions, of all Shelter to Home's adoptable animals can be found on its website. Shelter to Home can be contacted by phone at 734-556-3135 and through email.
Emily Solomchuck, a volunteer at WAG Animal Rescue, introduces us to Ted the dog and Dexter the cat:
Ted is less than a year old shih tzu mix. He weighs 15 ½ pounds and is all puppy. He’s sweet and cuddly one minute and rampaging through the house the next, barking at you to play with him and dropping his toys at your feet. He has to have his toys around him all the time. He will even try sneak them outside to bury in the snow. He is full of antics and such a joy to be around. We are working on housebreaking him and he seems to do pretty well most the time. He has been around some older children and seems to do fine. He has not been tested around cats. Ted is neutered, dewormed, vaccinated and microchipped. He has lots of energy, so he must have a fenced-in yard.
Dexter is a male, domestic long hair, Maine Coon Mix. He was rescued from a local shelter and is very playful and has a ton of energy. Dexter is about 10 months old, very friendly and loving. He also is neutered, up-to-date with routine shots and house trained.
Anyone interested in adopting an animal from WAG is encouraged to visit the group's website and fill out an application online. The group's animals are on display every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Livonia PetSmart, 13150 Middlebelt. As not all animals are brought up each week, potential adopters are encouraged to email the group to make arrangements for a particular animal to be available to be seen. An entire list, including photographs and descriptions, of all the group's adoptable animals can be found on its website.
Rose Darin, a volunteer at the Wyandotte Animal Pound, introduces us to Keesley and Genie Beanie the cats:
Keesley (named for the Black Keys) is an extremely handsome domestic short hair cat. He enjoys tapping his paws in the water dish to keep the beat (and to take sips of water.) He purrs a lot and really enjoys being held and stroked softly. He is very friendly and certainly a people's cat. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, dewormed and litter box trained.
Genie Beanie is a domestic short hair gray and white cat with fur so soft it feels like a cloud. She is sweet, from the tip of her tail to the dot on her nose. She is a bit shy and quiet, but enjoys being petted. She is a great listener and would be a welcome addition to any caring family's home. She is spayed, up to date on vaccines, tested negative for feline AIDS and leukemia, dewormed and litter box trained.
The Wyandotte Animal Pound is located at 1170 Grove St. Adoptions are done 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Friday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday. An entire list, including photographs and descriptions, of all the pound's adoptable animals can be found on its website. The pound also can be contacted through email.
